FOREWORD

The best leaders touch lives, instil hope, and empower individuals. This memoir tells the tales of a lady administrator renowned as disciplinary yet rational at the College of Education. It entails the serendipity that lies from the unexpected moment when she was immediately transferred from the Training Office to become the acting CEd Dean during a trying time, later to become the full time Dean until her retirement. For someone like Dr. Teodora Battad who has the vision to achieve goals, the inclusive heart that brings out the best in people, and the will power capable of initiating development, she has far exceeded the expectations. Chapters in this book offers real-life and practical stories of inspirational leadership that educate beyond pages of the book. The wisdom, lessons, and values found in this book are valuable to leaders, aspiring leaders, administrators, professionals of any discipline, and students who still have inhibitions, and are yet to discover the excellence within them.

PREFACE

This book chronicles Dr. Teodora T. Battad’s short but meaningful stint as Dean of the College of Education during the time when the college faces an internal rift. Reluctant at first, she was ultimately convinced by the late Dr. Ruben C. Sevilleja to leave her long-time post as the Director of the Training Office to become the college dean two years before her mandatory retirement from the government service. Experiential in nature, the book guarantees every reader the wisdom in educational management and leadership from one of the most admired women administrators of her time. Through this book, Dr. Dola was able to share her leadership and management styles and approaches which may be of a big help to aspiring and present academic leaders. Despite her short stay in the college, she became instrumental in empowering faculty members and students through worthwhile projects which include funded research projects for CEd faculty and publication of coffee table books and anthology of student essays among others. Worthy to mention among her other innovations as a dean include the holding of “Professor of the Day” and campus tour of freshmen students in the University. I wish to see that other retiring professors of our University may also venture into this kind of activity which may be one of the legacies they may leave to the younger generations to let our younger faculty members benefit from their rich and colorful professional life experiences. Enjoy reading!

DEAN’S NOTES

August 13, 2014 was a memorable date when the former President Ruben C. Sevilleja and his wife came to our home. I thought all the while, that he would like to talk to Dr. Fortunato A. Battad, CLSU president emeritus.

I had been in the College of Education since August 14, 2014. My life in the college had been very challenging, exciting and enjoyable.

I was taken aback when my household help told me that the president wanted to talk to me. Dr. Battad left for a while but Dr. Sevilleja requested him to join us. I remember it clearly when the president said, “I need your help, and I would not accept ‘No’ for an answer.” Cliché it is but that was the beginning of a remarkable journey for me as educator, and the rest is history. I was declared the Acting Dean of the College of Education the next day -August 14, 2014. I had the opportunity to ask the president why me, but I just heard, “because you can face challenges and problems in life.” I verbalized my apprehension, “I may not be able to live up to your expectations, Sir.” He responded, “You were able to tame the lions, I know you can.” I have to admit, I cried thinking of the big responsibility. I even mentioned that I was finishing a coffee table book entitled “Empowering People thru Training” and my hope to take a leave of absence until I retire, if possible with God’s grace.


Dr. Teodora T. Battad presides over her first faculty meeting at the College of Education.


Seemingly, I felt like I was uprooted from the Training where I grew professionally and that I had to be planted again. I received feedbacks from students after a week in the college (CED) that I am strict. Possibly because I did not approve of their request for release of the SC-CEs fund without project proposal and budget plan.

That was the beginning of my rendezvous with CED constituents. My stint as dean in the College of Education mirrored my philosophy in leadership and management. The same had also guided me as director of the Training Office of the CLSU Research, Extension and Training for 23 years. To wit: “Management is the art and science of mobilizing, organizing and deploying ideas, people, physical resources and time to accomplish certain purposes or goals which may apply

My first meeting with the college faculty was full of enthusiasm, but everybody was silent as if feeling each other’s presence. It was very successful according to the attendees. By word of mouth, the comments reached the CLSU President.

Management is the art and science of mobilizing, organizing and deploying ideas, people, physical resources and time to accomplish certain purposes or goals which may apply to all human endeavors while leadership is the process of influencing the thoughts and feelings of people in order to attain organizational goals.

to all human endeavors while leadership is the process of influencing the thoughts and feelings of people in order to attain organizational goals.� In the performance of my roles as an official, I was guided by motivation, conviction, coherence and directions. However, in order to possess these attributes, I must have a clear appreciation of the University’s philosophy, vision and mission. Humbly, I did not only internalize them but I articulated them convincingly and clearly to people whose support I seek, people I work with, and people working for me.

To be duly functional, any unit in the university in this respect must have people who possess integrity and excellence in all undertakings. The accreditation of CLSU by various accrediting organizations through the Training Office can serve as indicators for this, like Civil Service Commission, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, Professional Regulation

Commission and Local Governance Training Resource InstitutePhilippines Network. The College of Education is under the Academic Affairs and Training Office is under the RET. Each provides different priority offerings - formal education for the CED and non-formal education for the Training Office. From this opaque, CLSU is creating effects and impact on the social, cultural, educational, political, spiritual and environmental domains of the people it serves via management of training programs. Having been part of these two is a self-fulfilling reward. It gives me personal satisfaction on top of my professional fulfilment that I am developing human resources as I see them empowered. Ultimately on the one hand through the programs, we have immensely contributed to food security of our people, thus addressing, if not eliminating hunger and poverty, and conserving nature on the other. Genuine service to our people, integrity and teamwork were some important values in my work as an official. There was nothing I found more rewarding than performing my roles and functions consistent with my values. I also valued teamwork. Teamwork is one of the greatest virtues embedded in the culture of the Filipinos. It could be demonstrated through “Bayanihan� spirit and therefore I always took advantage of this in most of my undertakings as it is within the culture of every worker.

People in our line of work should possess courtesy and humility since we belong to one of the offices that performed frontline services of the university. Being courteous and humble helped in the creation of good image not only to the personnel but also to the University at large.

Making the personnel effective and efficient was but one challenging role for me. Excellent staff is always an advantage in the management of human resources. People who are naturally self-driven just need little management. Aptly put, it is more challenging and rewarding to make ordinary people perform their tasks extraordinary well. In the training office, we were only few but proudly we accomplished a lot. I attributed this to my people’s motivation, and to my role modelling and mentoring to them on top of my consistent monitoring scheme.

Fundamentally, fund generation or fund sourcing became one of my important functions as a manager. The office can contribute more in the attainment of the goals of the organization if sufficient fund is at bay, thus the office helped generate and source out funds via submission of project proposals. Ideally though, inadequate budget should not hinder us to perform well. In my case, I tried to be resourceful, creative and innovative in our activities so we could contribute to excellent feats of the university.

Through the years, I have learned that the staff and faculty have to be motivated. Primarily, they need to have self-respect so in turn they can value the esteem of their peers, family and friends. Praises and recognition of their good deeds would inspire them to work harder. Fairness and honesty in this regard were factors that I considered. I really tried my best to give equal, fair and honest assessment. My timely feedbacks about their work were always contributory to their betterment.

Monitoring systems are practiced in order to follow up the utilization of inputs so that they may produce the best results out of the inputs used and processes done. Moreover, evaluation of our activities and projects were undertaken. Improvements were relentlessly done, particularly academic and training management and provision of training support services.

Role modelling is more effective than prescribing the attitude and behavior of staff in the workplace. To illustrate this would include punctuality, promptness in the submission of reports and filling up of daily time records regularly, and attendance to university functions. For those who did not follow the Civil Service rules and regulations and university policies, I reminded them of these. I did it either through oral or written communication.


As regards my leadership philosophy, I always use the participatory approach. Democratic style helps me to be more productive. I consider the idea of the faculty and staff in the daily operation. I consulted with them as deemed necessary. However, I provided clear expectation of what I hope to accomplish, how it should happen and when it should happen. I took full responsibility for the decisions made. This normally happened when we had inadequate time to produce outputs.

12

In all of these, I did not forget to seek the guidance of the Lord and offer everything for the glory of His name.

UNLEASHING EXCELLENCE: Simple ways to touch lives


16

Unleashing excellence to touch lives in the pedagogy or the other way around necessitates the interplay of factors which include the learners, the teachers, the environment and the strategies or approaches used in the teaching-learning process. It recognizes the appropriate procedures in the recruitment and admission of learners; the provision of competent teachers; the existence of quality facilities, classrooms, equipment; the availability of relevant curricula and instructional materials for the acquisition of basic knowledge and skills in order to prepare the learners for life. In perspective, the College of Education works for the four goals of CLSU: 1) quality and excellence in learning, 2) discovery of knowledge, 3) proactive engagement, and 4) good governance. All of these are anchored on the CLSU Philosophy that “the ultimate measure of the Central Luzon State University as an institution for higher learning is its contribution to and impact on the educational, economic, social, cultural, political and moral well-being and environmental consciousness of the people it serves.” Moreover, the projects and activities of the college are aligned towards the attainment of the CLSU vision which is “CLSU as a world-class national research university for science and technology in agriculture and allied fields”. Also, the college

UNLEASHING EXCELLENCE: Simple ways to touch lives

endeavors to contribute to the attainment of the CLSU’s mission, “CLSU shall develop globally competitive, workready, socially-responsible and empowered human resources who value life-long learning and generate, disseminate and apply knowledge and technologies for poverty alleviation, environmental protection, and sustainable development.”

Vision The College of Education as a Center of Excellence in Teacher Education dedicated to relevance and service toward sustainable development of highly equipped and globally competitive educators”.

TEODORA T. BATTAD, PhD

UNLEASHING EXCELLENCE: Simple ways to touch lives

17

Unleashing excellence pertains to the strategies, approaches, methods used by the administrators, teachers and students alike so that they can provide situation and opportunities to students, teachers and administrators towards working together and relating to each other to attain the goals set by CLSU. As of 2016, the vision, mission and goals of the CEd are as follow:


Mission The College of Education shall develop responsive educators, and shall hone the expertise and specializations for people empowerment, global competitiveness and sustainable development of human resources.

18

Goals 1. To train future educators in elementary level who can teach across the learning areas both in grade school and preschool; 2. To train future educators in secondary level with specialization in Biological Sciences, English, Filipino, Mathematics, Music, Arts, Physical Education and Health (MAPEH), Physical Sciences, Social Studies, Technology and Livelihood Education (TLE), or Values Education; 3. To train future extension workers to become effective partners of national development and cultural ideals; and, 4. To promote and disseminate researches in the field of education and allied fields through instruction, production, extension, and networking services.

Student Development and Welfare Through the incentive system, student-members of Maestro Singers and CLSU Band, Rondalla were given privileges such as: free tuition fee, lodging place, free uniform and some travel support for their participation in requested performances and competitions, locally and abroad. Considered important and relevant also in unleashing excellence among students is their involvement in competitions in the sciences, skills Olympics in agriculture, and in publication of school papers as writers, editors, and the like particularly among high school students of the two maintained laboratory schools of the college – the USHS and ASTS. Mentoring has been very pronounced albeit the absence of binding policy on this respect. It has been part of the system/ roles of the faculty members of the college. This has probably emanated from the very rigorous nature of their work in the college in order to meet the demands of their academic world.

Simple mentoring may be done through guiding students on the procedures that they have to follow in activities and projects that they do. A good example was when the student council of the CEd was requesting for release of their funds. I saw to it that they had project proposal and budget plan. That was when I was still a week in the college. Hence, I was branded as very strict. If only I had the time, I would have read all the narrative reports - looking at the correctness and completeness of all parts and letting the students rewrite, if not revise for better considerations.

In-campus co-curricular and extra-curricular and off-campus activities were participated in by the students. Through Dr. Florante Ibarra, Prof. Carlos Lamson and Ms. Bernadeth Delos Reyes, members of Maestro Singers, rondalla and CLSU band were performers in concert-demonstration teachings. They shared the musical tones and tempo and musical instrument, and application of these thru singing of selected appropriate songs for the occasions. The leadership training of the CEd-SC and Department Council, the Educator’s Garden and EduCreate: An Essay Writing Challenge for students of the CEd, the Acquaintance Party, the National Teachers Day Celebration, the Junior-Senior Promenade, the Student Congress of USHS and ASTS, the USHS Science Fair and Exhibits were but some in campus projects and activities of the students through the guidance of the faculty and CEd Management. These projects provided meaningful and memorable experiences to the students. Students learned the rigors of planning, implementing, monitoring, evaluation, process documentation, and packaging of the report. More specifically, they gained knowledge and skills on how to prepare proposals with rationale, objectives, methods/mechanics of implementation, budget plan, system for monitoring and

The College of Education-Student Council (CEd-SC) recognizes the importance of planning their projects and activities. Hence a planning session was held. This would guide particularly the officers in the operation and management of their CEd-SC within their term of office. Specifically, at the end of this planning session, the officers were expected to: 1. Identify the project that would benefit CEd studentry and other CEd partners and clienteles; 2. State the objectives of each project; 3. Identify methods/strategies to be used; 4. List the resources needed such as people involved, budget and facilities; and 5. Identify the expected outputs. CEd-SC adviser and a faculty of the college served as facilitator of the planning session.

I was invited to give a message during this important activity. I was there as early as 7:30 AM but I was lost or so I thought I was for I could not locate them. Only to find out later that no one arrived on time. Anyway, I took it as a good opportunity to remind them on the importance of time. In addition, I emphasized to them the following principles in leadership and management. • The CEd-SC must have clear statements of vision, mission and goals. These must be aligned to the CLSU and CEd VMG and must be understood by all.

UNLEASHING EXCELLENCE: Simple ways to touch lives

TEODORA T. BATTAD, PhD


• The functions of the different groups of students within the CEd-SC should be clear to all. • The CEd-SC leaders should practice leadership by example. Everybody should be given responsibility and accountability. • CEd-SC leaders should be able to delegate authority. • The statement of policies of CEd-SC must be clear to all, measurable and broad enough to permit flexibility.

• Prioritization of projects and activities according to urgency, relevance and importance should be done. • Reward mechanism should be put in place as it provides inspirations where constituents are recognized and given appreciation for their accomplishment. In closing, student leaders were reminded that there could be a unique feeling of satisfaction when they can help as leaders, but still it is important for them to get high grades and maintain them. In the end, I made them realize that academic performance, attitudes and character determine the success of a student leader.

• There must be transparency in all aspects in the CEd-SC especially on financial matters.


EduCreate

An Essay Writing Challenge for College of Education Students

A Seminar for all CEd students in line with choosing major that fits was the first activity that I attended during my first day of office as acting dean in the college. I was approached by a student who told me just before lunch that I would give a message at 1:00 PM. Indeed, I was surprised. Nonetheless, I discovered that the students were very good. The student representatives campaigned for the majors that fit. They discussed the importance and relevance of the major field of specialization, and their potential employability. It was during this seminar that I challenged the faculty and students to prepare a proposal and to participate in the essay writing contest. Notwithstanding that there was no trainingworkshop conducted on essay writing. Ms. Maria Ruby Hiyasmin Malicdem of the College Guidance Office and Mr. Vincent Feliciano accepted the challenge. Hence, the proposal was prepared and submitted for my perusal. It was the start of the two series essay writing contest which was entitled EduCreate: An Essay Writing Challenge for College of Education Students. This became a project in response to the challenge that I gave during the campaign in “Choosing Major that Fits.�

The idea gave birth to the essay writing contest with this provoking question, “Why I Chose to be a Teacher?” This project was opened to all college students in 2014. However, only freshmen students were encouraged to participate in 2015. With the support of teachers, the students were given time to write the essay as part of their class activity. Essays of three students were chosen by the teacher for inclusion in the final round. A total of 84 essays were selected and the writers participated in the final round. This time, the outputs were distributed to teachers who served as editor-evaluators. Ten best essays were identified and from among them, three (3) were chosen. The three winners were given cash awards and certificates of recognition. Likewise, all the other participants were granted certificates of participation during the “World’s Teachers Celebration” on October 3, 2014 and October 5, 2015. This project generally aimed to encourage creativity among the students through essay writing. Moreover, it was intended to bring out their ability to think reflectively, write persuasively, and present well-coordinated ideas in a compact fashion.

Developing Ambassadors of Goodwill: CLSU Students Campus Tour How can teachers and future teachers serve as ambassadors of goodwill about CLSU? It is easy to be such if they are knowledgeable about the university and the projects therein.

It is in this context that the idea of conducting field trip to the different CLSU research and development projects for faculty and students of the College of Education was presented and approved in one of the regular CED Faculty meetings. This activity provided opportunities and situations by which the student participants as well as the faculty serving as tour guides had a “look-see� of the projects and at the same time had firsthand information on the projects.

UNLEASHING EXCELLENCE: Simple ways to touch lives

Albeit, there are some teachers who can talk much about CLSU there are those who know a little. On the part of future teachers, there would be instances that they would come across relevant information about the university. Some of them might have roamed around CLSU and some of them could have heard it from the teachers and other CLSU constituents. But that is not sufficient to become ambassadors of goodwill. There is a need to know more about the university in order for them to be effective and efficient purveyors of the good things about the university that could help the students outside of CLSU including their own families and the community as well.


44

The field trip generally aimed to promote greater awareness and familiarization on the CLSU projects and to inculcate in their minds their roles as ambassadors of goodwill of CLSU in the dissemination of relevant information and technology. Additionally, it can help in the recruitment of good students that will pursue teacher education in CLSU. The first group of students that toured to the different CLSU projects were the graduating students during 2nd Semester, SY 2014-2015. It was entitled “Final Glance : A Revisit to CLSU via Field Trip�. The CED desired to create wonderful experiences and lifelong camaraderie among students through one day journey of the recollection of their experiences at CLSU and at the same time to know more about the CLSU research and development projects. In the succeeding year, the field trip was purposely intended for freshmen of the CED. It was undertaken to create awareness of CLSU in general, and of the CLSU projects in particular so that they can develop an appreciation of what they can do as future teachers starting from the time that they entered CLSU. Assoc. Prof. Emily P. Astrero served as the lead faculty and overall coordinator of the first field trip while Mr. Vincent Feliciano for the second batch. The two mentioned faculty members took the lead

role in the planning, and in the overall coordination of the field trip. Prior to the implementation of both field trips, consultation meetings were done regarding the logistical arrangements. Wholehearted cooperation among the faculty and students were noted. The students had their share of planning particularly for their transportation and food during the field trip.

It was suggested that the remarkable evaluation result including those comments for improvement may be considered for improvement of future field trips to CLSU research and development projects.

After the field trip, evaluation instrument was administered to get feedback from students. The participants gave inspiring comments and they mentioned significant learnings. Students opined that they realized the importance of agriculture. Moreover, the first batch found the field trip educational. Generally, the participants mentioned their feelings about the field trip as happy, enjoyed, amazed, proud, relaxed and satisfied. It may be concluded that the students and faculty had wonderful experiences during the field trip. Hopefully, their experiences could contribute to their being ambassadors of goodwill about CLSU not only when they become student teachers but also in their everyday lives both for teachers and student participants.


A garden at CEd. As part of the CEd beautification project, the College of Education together with CEd-SC sponsored the construction of a park and landscaping project at the college lawn in front of the DG Tan Hall.


Educator’s Garden A “kapit-bisig” project”

This project became an avenue to unleash excellence among the students, faculty and staff.

I also discussed the matter with CEd-SC led by President Eman Castillo together with their adviser, Prof. Catalina Cadiz. They immediately responded to my request that we collaboratively work towards this end. Hence, SC leaders were guided to prepare the proposal. The project aimed to provide opportunities to students under the guidance of their teachers to develop the love and care for the plants thus, contributing to the protection of the environment. Specifically, the students were expected to: • adopt an area to motivate and encourage CEd students to take part in the beautification and maintenance of the cleanliness and orderliness in the college;

In my desire at the College of Education to make the environment conducive for learning and teaching, I immediately met with the janitorial group and discussed the 2-page list of items that urgently need to be addressed. These concerned the cleanliness, orderliness of the surroundings, classrooms, comfort rooms and other facilities. I targeted a week to improve the aesthetic scenery of the college.

• promote the spirit of camaraderie among the CEd students through competitive activities; and • cultivate creativity among participants through landscaping. Through volunteerism and unified efforts among students, faculty and staff, the project was implemented, using the strategy “Kapit-bisig.” The project posed numerous benefits to faculty, staff, and students.The green and beautiful scenery had worked against their stresses in life. Through participation, students got to increase self-esteem, maintained focus, developed patience, fostered cooperation, established teamwork and acquired social skills. They gained self-confidence and develop knowledge and skills in landscaping. It had become a wonderful way to encourage relaxation while also impressing visitors who came and visited the College. In line with the university’s thrust, the college embraces the multidisciplinary and multi-institution approach to community- based learning that presents an incredible opportunity for students to have meaningful experience beyond the portals of the university. Also, it affords the students to play a productive role in working with community partners to change existing landscape. Through participation in small learning communities with the aforementioned academic services, combined with community services and social opportunities such as special events like series of lectures and studies, students were holistically trained.

Furthermore, this engagement provided them ample and appropriate training to real-life services outside the four corners of the classroom. The community services entailed more than just casual volunteerism. They provided training and leadershipbuilding experiences vis-a-vis educational experience that would go a long way in their personal development.

Moreover, the success of any program could be highly dependent on the work force, its manpower, the team that is equipped and willing to take multiple, if not divergent responsibilities. The team members must be ready to work collaboratively and to do whatever it will take to ensure success. That was critical but the scenario was not far-fetched in the college. The faculty, staff, and students of the College of Education could be a “dream team� because they embody the values and traits making the CED the leading college for teacher education at this part of the country.


Faculty and Staff Development

50

Two requisites of excellence in learning are that “high quality� and globally competitive faculty and staff members who are recruited, developed and retained. Thus, for a period of almost two years, three faculty members who satisfied the requirements not only in terms of competence but also in terms of work ethics ,and attitudes, and value-added asset were hired. There were faculty members whose professional capabilities were challenged and inspired by projects that promote complementation. A good example is the publication of five books in the college: Why I Chose to be a Teacher Book I and II, Step up to the Future, Portrait of an Icon: Fortunato Aglibut Battad and Ruben C. Sevilleja: The President. The faculty and staff members who enjoyed working together are from the College of Education departments and University Science High School. This is also the case in the preparation of research and extension program proposals and in the implementation of the same. Moreover, complementation, cooperation and coordination were also observed in the management of trainings whether in-house or with grants from funding institutions. As a result, financial assistance was availed from the CLSU administration and Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Agricultural Research (DABAR).

Notably, the faculty of the college were provided with opportunities and privileges for continuing professional education/development. Supports given included registration fee and travel expenses for participation and/or presentation of research papers. However, the participation was democratized among the faculty and that faculty development program was planned ahead. Within the period of almost two years, three faculty of the college were supported by CLSU thru the Faculty Development Program and all participated in the trainings and related activities.

The college faculty did not lag behind in terms of receiving awards for they were qualified for such. From August 2014 to April 1, 2016, the following were feathers in the cap of the college and CLSU as well.

The College of Education preserves and strengthens excellence in research activities. It is in this context that training on research project proposal preparation was conducted. The outputs were research project proposals, some of which had already been implemented. Five research projects were given budget allocation of P500,000 by the CLSU administration while a project with 3 sub-projects were provided a total amount of P1.8M by the Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Agricultural Research. There were researches conducted by other faculty themselves while a number of researches were undertaken with students whom they mentored. In essence, for almost two years, there was an increase in the number of faculty-researchers involved in research. Also the budget sourced-out may be considered as contribution of the college to the increase in research budget of the university.

Supporting this claim is the CEd AdoptA-School Program. This program was funded by CLSU in the amount of P419,000 for three projects with faculty and staff from the CEd and ASTS as implementors. The projects were as follow:

Project 2: Developing a Culture of Reading Through Reading Buddies Project 3: Plant A Tree and Grow with Me Also, the faculty conducted a non-formal education to partner schools outside of CLSU with the principals, supervisors, pupils, parents and local government units as beneficiaries. In doing these, CEd students served as partners in the implementation, monitoring and evaluation.

Tulong Handog sa mga Katutubo

The College of Education - Student Council

Aiming to promote the welfare of the indigenous people, to gain deep understanding of the value of volunteerism, and to help improve the community through relevant and active services, the College of Education together with the Student Council visited the Dumagat family of Sitio Pagsanghan, Pinamalisan, Gabaldon, Nueva Ecija, Philippines. Annually, the college conducted this Tulong Handog sa mga Katutubo Project as one of its ways in uplifting the lives of others, serving beyond the call of duty, and teaching the community of maximizing sustained human resource through technologically anchored livelihood education. This awakened the compelling need to reclaim the indigenous identity of the Filipino. It promoted preservation of culture and heritage among the natives. From this opaque, faculty and students got to appreciate better their roots and reaped the fruits of their collaborative efforts, they instilled shades and traces of hopes and ideals for Filipinos. The College of Education together with the Student Council and volunteer students from different organizations served as catalysts in influencing the National Commission for Indigenous People (NCIP) Nueva Ecija to extend its helping hands to the

The college through the initiative of its student council and members of the college-based organizations brought and donated goods, food, toys, clothes, and educational materials for the Dumagat people. Aside from those, 100 mahogany seedlings were given to 150 Dumagat families. Simple yet heart warming and soul touching. Indeed, as the day ended, everybody shared the smile, joy, wisdom, and hope for a better world.

Physical Resources and Facility Development

The College of Education strives to acquire and provide physical facilities needed to maintain excellence. The faculty and students were provided enhanced opportunities to participate in making the physical resources particularly the surroundings and classrooms conducive to teaching-learning process. The information and educational technology infrastructures were enhanced via purchase of additional computers and improvement of existing ones. Also, the air-conditioning units were checked and additional units were purchased and installed. The college constituents were involved in the “Educators Garden� using the Kapit-Bisig approach. In so doing, the college helped in the intensification of the clean and green project of the university. In this light, the college would soon implement the adopt-aclassroom project where a faculty and a group of students would be assigned to maintain and observe cleanliness of classrooms. A monitoring chart/ form would be posted in the classroom for visibility check. The subject, schedule and faculty handling the class would be included in the chart/form for better accessibility.

Financial Resources One good experience in the aspect of financial resources is one that involves planning, mapping, and eventually implementing an effective, efficient and participatory system of fiscal management. At the very onset, I enjoined the faculty and staff to be participative in the preparation of the Annual Procurement Plan (APP) and the Procurement Program Management Plan (PPMP). Graphically, they were laid with the road map for the college in terms of procurement and expenditures.

I had experienced mentoring the faculty in aggressively preparing research and extension project proposals so that we could get funding support from external sources in addition to the budget from the university. I observed that the faculty involved in these programs/projects delighted on these experiences. What a good consolation on my part as I consider this as important legacy.

Additionally, they learned about the importance of purchase request, purchase order and budget utilization request and other needed documents for reimbursement and liquidation purposes and the rules/procedures to follow. How satisfying it is to note that they are happy to experience the procedures, which they found very difficult in the beginning. Even the students were mentored on this.

Fortunately, I was a contestant in parliamentary procedures, cooking and flower arrangement. Indeed, it was an exciting experience. And what was memorable was when we were honored at CLSU by the then President Amado C. Campos with the re-awarding official, no other than Ninoy Aquino. I included that incident “A handshake with a hero”, in my Autobiography entitled TREASURED MOMENTS. Yes, I learned a lot from these kinds of activities. And these experiences of mine contributed to making me a better woman and brought me to what I am now. When I was still in the elementary school, I was already dreaming big.

So, I did not mind going on barefoot to school even when I was already in Grade 6. During hot days, the stones on the streets were very hot. I usually looked for papers or grasses or pieces of wood to step on just so I could bear the heat. I did not mind being told by a teacher in one of the souvenir photo sessions of the class, “Teodora, you better go home and put on your best dress.” I told my teacher, “but Mam, this is already my best dress!” I could also vividly recall in high school that I did not like to miss my classes and so I kept on sewing the sole of my shoes whenever they gave in. These experiences of mine are so many but I told myself, these are only temporary and I did not lose HOPE. To me, H is humility; O is obedience; P is patience and persevering, and E is education, my dream to be educated so that I could be at par with other professionals because I believe education is an equalizer. I dreamt high as I put it “Let’s dream big and lift and offer these dreams to God. As Pope Francis said to the Filipino families,” When you lose the capacity to dream, you lose the capacity to love, and the energy of this love is lost.” While I was dreaming of big things, I was working hard silently and focused, ever concerned of my family so that I can lift them from poverty; I was concerned with my community and my relationship with others, but most importantly, I was concerned with my relationship to God.

To my great delight, I found out I was his crush too. He sent me a flower with a note “A Rose for you” and you bet I was so thrilled and edgy as well because I love roses. Nevertheless, it was not our fate to end as mates. Since then, I prayed unceasingly and my prayer was, “Lord please give me the right man at my right age at the right time.” By the way, thank you very much for inviting us. I learned many things. This is the first time that I looked up for the meaning of PROMENADE or Prom seriously. I did not know that Prom means “to take a walk; to display one’s finery”. I did not know that in other countries the Prom King and Prom Queen representing the seniors are revealed, and that the Prom Princess and prom Prince come from the Juniors; that there is a prom court composed of students who excel in the class, active in socio-cultural, and sports activities. So in short they are the cream of the crop.

It is only now that I know why during our J-S prom in 1968, the brightest students were crowned and given sash as Pilipinas, Maria Clara and Alma Mater. The Prom court members were also crowned during that moment. “Sa totoo lang ngayon ko lang naintindihan ang concept ng ginawa ni Ginang Irabagon sa amin”. What I am aware of is that J-S Prom is a tribute of Juniors to Seniors. Also, it is a turnover of responsibility of Seniors to the Juniors.

I firmly believe that the Senior’s lasting legacy are the following: - Respect and trust for one another - Values for time management - Care for the environment - Always in love with science - Gratefulness to the teachers, staff, co-students, parents and most importantly to the Lord. I observed that the Seniors can serve as role models of the juniors because that demonstrated the 3 S: Sincerity, Sacrifice and Service.

I come from a poor family. When I was still in the elementary school, I was inspired by my uncle to pursue higher education as he was teaching in CLSU. I was then dreaming big things. So I did not mind going to school on barefoot sometimes even when I was already Grade 6. During hot days, when stones were very hot, I usually looked for papers, or grasses or pieces of wood to step on, just so I could bear the heat. I did not mind being told by a teacher in one of the souvenir photo sessions of the class, “Teodora, you better go home and put on your best dress.” I told my teacher, “but Ma’am, this is already my best dress!” I could also vividly recall that I usually went to school with my siblings and just be satisfied with fish sauce or bagoong as our dish or ulam. During rice cropping season, I had exciting experiences which helped us to survive. I remember gathering crabs from the holes in the dikes. I did not know then how risky it was. I got scared only when I imagine that a snake might be there. I wonder if the children of today can gather snails either through “paghuhukay” during dry season or soaking themselves in the swamp during rainy season. I also gathered saluyot during May, tied them and had them sold in Sto. Domingo. Imagine, we were just walking to reach the place crossing the Talavera River. When I was in Grade 5 and Grade 6, I stayed with my aunt who was a teacher. They helped me with my school needs and I was provided free food. I helped them in the household chores and in taking care of a child. I experienced washing clothes in the river

with two full big basin of dirty clothes for washing. Poor child that I was, “dumudugo ang mga kamay ko,” because we had not yet discovered then the net bag to wash clothes.

Around two months, my aunt came and requested me to go back to their home and stayed with them. I surmised, she realized that I could be a big help to them. And so, I was with them when I was in college and when I took my masters degree. In all the aforementioned experiences, I learned important values in life: hard work, and time management. I met challenges and problems in life. I said to myself that these are only temporary and I did not lose hope. I dreamt big, as I put it, let’s dream big and lift and offer these dreams to the Lord. As Pope Francis said to the Filipino families,

In return, I had to do household chores like marketing, cooking, cleaning the house, washing clothes and ironing them, taking care of a child, and many more. There was a time that I did not understand my aunt’s way of discipline hence, I stayed in the dorm considering that the food would be free if we work for it. Anyway, in those times I knew how to survive as I could just eat with “purico” and salt or bagoong.


“When you lose the capacity to dream, you lose the capacity to love, and the energy of this love is lost.�

While I was dreaming big things, I was working hard silently and focused, ever concerned of my family so that I can lift them from poverty; I was concerned with my community and my relationship with others, but most importantly, I was so concerned with my relationship with the Lord. I was able to climb the mountains; cross the oceans, and reached the end of the tunnel, and there I saw a garden full of roses and sunflowers with leaves heavily swaying with the wind, with flowers beautifully open . . . welcoming all the blessings of the Lord. I feel I succeeded despite the turbulence in the environment, despite the so many temptations in my love life. Who would believe that I had more than 10 suitors when I was in college. They are all successful in their profession like being Vice President of Land Bank, Professors, Engineers, lawyers, and even Vice President of CLSU. My weapon was, I prayed unceasingly. I said, Lord, please give me the right man at the right age and at the right time. Indeed, it happened. I had an agricultural engineer as my first husband. I have 2 wonderful children with him. My son is a graduate of Information Technology in St. Louise, Baguio City and working as a programmer in a Canadian Company. My daughter is a graduate of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology in UP Diliman as Summa Cum Laude. But my husband did not

witness their accomplishment because he joined the kingdom of the Lord when our children were still small. God is really so kind that He gave me another man who served also as a real father to my children. He is Dr. Fortunato A. Battad, former president of CLSU and now President Emeritus, of the same University and concurrently the Chairman, Board of Agriculture, Professional Regulation Commission. I have seven step children with him: five are Ph.D. degree holders and two are Directors of tennis centers abroad.

My parents have been my role models for humility and for hard work. I integrated these virtues in all my work at CLSU as a leader in the BDS, in the Training Office, and as a Professor. I have been in the Training Office for more than 20 years as its Director. However, last August 14, 2014, I was transferred to the College of Education. It is a complete shift in my work from nonformal education to formal education. President Ruben C. Sevilleja came to our home and told me that I will be the Dean of the College. I asked him, why me Sir? and he answered,� because I know that you can face challenges and

problems in life”. To be trusted by a great leader is something I cannot forget. Just like when Dr. Filomena F. Campos got me as her Secretary, she said, I have chosen you because I know you can be a very good gate keeper and I know you can handle very well confidential matters. I surmise that President Sevilleja has chosen me to serve as instrument in bringing peace and joy to the college. Lately, the University President told me that many of my colleagues are very happy working with me. Thanks God for the appreciation! As I work with people with individual differences, I believe that wisdom from the seasoned leaders and administrators is my best guide, and my faith in the Lord is my best companion. “Mga kababayan,” there are 3 P’s which contributed to what I am today: P – Passion – is the intense desire to do something in relationship with others. I am passionate in doing things. I do what I love, and I love what I do. P – Proficiency – is being skilled and competent in doing something. I give my best in everything I do. P – Persistency – means continuing firmly in spite of difficulty or opposition. I am finding ways and means to justify what I would like to do considering the existing policies and resources. But in demonstrating the 3 P’s, we need to remember the acronym

When we love one another, we show our love to the Lord. Within us is the need to know that we are special, that we are loved. I felt your love when you persistently invited me.

Welcome to Central Luzon State University and College of Education! I am very much delighted to be with you today for we have one thing in common. We belong to the noblest profession in the world, teaching. We touch the lives of many individuals through education. To me, education is the greatest equalizer in life. Because when we are educated, we can live a life at par with other professionals. And no one can take it away from us if we live by the ethics where our profession is based. It is only God who can withdraw it from us. I believe education is a good investment. It brings us to the status

that we have something to protect. Since we have something to protect, we do not create trouble, hence we serve as models in contributing to a peaceful community. You and I are very fortunate for we are at the Central Luzon State University which is a Center of Excellence in Teacher Education. Center of Excellence is only one in the region and CLSU is the deserving institution of higher learning in Region 3. Moreover, CLSU is No. 6 in the Philippines among the public and private educational institutions considering the number of Center of Excellence and Center of Development.

The mass training generally aims to provide you with a foundational, theoretical, methodological, and experiential learning which will enable you to effectively apply the Enhanced K-12 Basic Education Program. As you all know, the goal of the Enhanced K-12 Basic Education Program is to create basic education system that will produce productive and responsible citizens equipped with the

Designated as a Teacher Education Institute (TEI) by DepEd, CLSU will provide the Mass training for Filipino and Araling Panlipunan Teachers in Nueva Ecija. Approximately, 256 teachers in Filipino and 162 teachers in Araling Panlipunan totaling 418 secondary teachers are expected to attend. Specifically, you are representing the Divisions of the Science City of Munoz, San Jose City, Cabanatuan City and Gapan City.

essential competencies and skills for both life-long learning and employment. K-12 does not only aim to teach learners the available information that could serve as prerequisite for future learning for the curriculum but would also help them identify which path are they going to take based on their skills and preferences. After finishing high school under the K-12 curriculum, one has to choose whether he will pursue a degree or will start to work. This is not to discourage anyone to complete any bachelor’s degree. This is just to show the realities of the curriculum that the moment one graduated from high school, he is already empowered and can be competitive in the work field. This direction of the government is making our youth comparable with the youth of other countries in terms of the level of basic education that they would attain. CLSU envisions to contribute to this noble mission of the government in collaboration with the Department of Education. We hope that with the cooperation of the stakeholders we can see the fruits of our labor. Just like our trainers, I know that you are the group of teachers who are prompt in everything and also very creative and innovative because you possess the 3 P’s: You have the passion, proficiency and persistency in doing something related to K to 12 concerns, so that you can influence and inspire your pupils/ students, peers and clientele in the community through the guidance and supervision of your leaders/supervisors.

If I may suggest, before your breakfast daily and after your sessions in the afternoon, go around CLSU. Enjoy its greenness; listen to the chirping of the birds and the sound of the insects while savoring the beauty of the projects until you have explored and discovered the hidden treasures of CLSU. The things that you will learn may be appropriately integrated in your lessons when you go back to your respective schools. Let us all commit ourselves together for the successful implementation of our K to 12 programs particularly in Filipino and Araling Panlipunan.

May we have a very interesting, exciting and productive 6 days ahead of us. Thank you and Mabuhay!

Welcome to our relevant and important activity today, our tribute to the graduating students and their parents. Congratulations my dear graduating students for your accomplishments and for choosing to be teachers. Teaching is a noble profession. Congratulations also to the parents who really worked hard to let their children finish college degree. I come from a poor family. I did not know that I can pursue my high school studies. But I considered it as a blessing for I have uncle who was a teacher in CLAC. He said, you come to CLAC and I will help you to get high school diploma. Since I dreamt big I joined them. I did my way to that dream. I worked hard. I did almost all the household chores while studying. I needed a lot of discipline in myself. I survived. Because I performed well at home I was offered to stay with them again. My uncle that I

When you get employed, serve your organization and its constituents well. Also, remember the less privileged people in the barangays. Extend help via community service. Be selfless in sharing your time, talents and treasures. There are many situations and opportunities that you as teachers will sacrifice, like being punctual in going to office all the time and going home late. By all means do it for it is in this way that you can be role

I remember how I prayed hard to the Lord when I was studying. I said, “Lord, I have many siblings. They need to study also, so please guide me in my studies, give me strength, give me the capability, make me competent but please give me the right man at the right place and at the time.� I was active in church activities! I was cooking and serving food for the trainees. It was there where I met the right man for me. And the rest is history. I would like to give you some pieces of advice. You have chosen to be teachers. Grab every chance by which you can show your integrity and honesty as a teacher. Nurture your students the way you were nurtured by your parents and your teachers. Be an instrument of change. Help your students develop their attitude towards protecting our environment. Maximize the use of ICT to broaden your horizon, and to develop yourselves to be more competent teachers and members of society as a whole.

models to your students and others. In addition to your ability to teach well inside the classroom, get involved by accepting additional assignments so that you can show your unique talents. Other things being equal, your value added assets will make you go ahead of others like our new CLSU President Dr. Tereso A. Abella who is very competent in research; Dr. Ibarra, Prof Lamson and Bernadeth and members of their group for their talents in music, and also the writers like Dr. Gaboy who have just been an achievement awardee of the CLSU Alumni Association, Inc. because of his involvement as writer and layout editor of books. You can be involved in sports also and in socio cultural activities. But you need to manage your time wisely. Most importantly, consider professional development. Pursue graduate programs. Last but not the least, help restore the dignity of teaching profession by exhibiting passion, cooperation, complementation and commitment. Be humble and respectful. In the performance of your roles as teachers, consider the Lord as the center of everything. To GOD be the GLORY!

simultaneously in all colleges of the University during the Grand Alumni Week Celebration. We are lucky enough here in the College of Education as we are the first to do it. Our lecturer today will be appropriately introduced a little bit later but I would like you to know that he is very committed, and persevering. Most importantly, he is a very generous man. Imagine, he offered us a place in their home for my family to stay with them for almost a week in 2000. It was a short break on my part but I visited students’ International Center and the food and lodging facilities at CalPoly University, Pomona Campus in connection with my work as director for training and chief of CLSU food and lodging services. Also, we were able to visit our relatives in San Francisco and had a study tour at Stanford University. Our Professor of the Day is very deserving considering his experiences as a professor. I am certain that all of us will benefit from his lecture. To one and all, let us enjoy the day! May God bless us all always!

EDUCATION


122

The College of Education has been carrying out teacher training function for the last 65 years. The college is continuously committed to train professional educators who will provide people’s needs at all levels of education around the globe. It trains student teachers for the extension services of the system both in agriculture and education spearheaded by three departments: Department of Elementary Education, Department of Secondary Education, and Department of Agricultural Extension Education. The Department of Elementary Education offers the Bachelor of Elementary Education program. It has two (2) specialization courses; Content Areas concentrated on English, Filipino, Mathematics, Science, Values Education, Social Studies, Music, Arts, Physical Education and Health (MAPEH), and Home Economics and Livelihood Education (HELE); and Pre-school Education. Its aim is to prepare future educators to be highly equipped with professional, social, and personal competencies, and to cater and hone young minds as the ultimate educational foundation of the pupils in elementary and pre-school education. The Department of Secondary Education gears up potential teachers in the high school level. It offers Bachelor of Secondary Education with nine (9) fields of specialization. These are Biological Sciences, English, Filipino, Mathematics, Music, Arts, Physical Education and Health (MAPEH), Physical Sciences, Social Studies, Technology and Livelihood Education (TLE), and Values Education. It looks forward to the sustainability in academic excellence through life-long learning experiences;

to the development of effective and efficient educators with multifaceted specializations as requisite for the betterment of cognitive, social, and personal values; and to the development of professional educators as leaders in various fields of research and development responsive to global challenges and competitiveness, demonstrating high degree of professionalism, social responsibility, policy generation and implementation, and promoting a cultural milieu that will further strengthen professionalism.

COLLEGE of EDUCATION A BIT OF

HISTORY


126 UNLEASHING EXCELLENCE: Simple ways to touch lives

TEODORA T. BATTAD, PhD


The College of Education is one of the oldest colleges in the university. It grew out of the department of agricultural education which was elevated into a college with conversion of the former CLAC into a university.As a college, it is professional teachers who will cater to the manpower needs of the elementary, secondary and tertiary levels of education in the Philippines, as well as to fill the needs for trained manpower for the agricultural extension services of the government for technology dissemination and education of the people in the rural communities.

The initial degree program of the college, and for that matter, of the new university, was the same Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Education (BSAEd) degree which is a departmental offering in the old CLAC. The BSAEd degree offers major fields in Animal Science, Crop Science and Agricultural Economics. Beginning in 1967, two new programs were offered: the Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Extension Education (BSAExEd) , and the Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education (BSEEd). In 1983, two fouryear courses were opened in response to the demand for more teachers in the elementary and secondary levels. The Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEEd) has the following areas of concentration: English! Mathematics, Practical Arts, Science and Guidance. On the other hand, the Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSEd) offers major fields in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, English, Filipino, Guidance and Physical Education.


Six decades had passed speedily. Thousands of quality days were consummated with flying colors. Since 1954, the College of Education had been faithful in its duty of harnessing and shaping future teachers’ holistic capabilities.

128

As years passed, CEd gained its reputable name in the field of providing relevant and life- long learning experience. Thus, in 1996 it was designated as Center of Development (COD) for Teacher Education in Region III. In 1999, CEd offered a double degree program, AB/BSEd, known as the CITE Program. Undeniably, the CEd continued its aim of training future educators who can deliver quality teaching that corresponds to global competitiveness. The Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines, Inc. (AACCUP) awarded Level I (Candidate Status) to the Teacher Education Program of CLSU on October 14, 1997; Level II (Accredited Status) on January 16, 1999; Level II (Re-accredited Status) on January 16, 2002; Qualified for Level III in September 2007; and Level III (Re-accredited Status) in November of the same year. On March 7, 2008, the CEd was designated by the Department of Education (DepEd), Commission on Higher Education (CHED), and Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA) as Center of Training (COT). On July 14, 2010, the Commission on Higher Education recognized the unquestionable reputation of the

CLSU–College of Education as it formally identified the latter as a Center of Excellence (COE) for Teacher Education. In January 2014, the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines, Inc. (AACCUP) granted to CED the qualification for Level IV Status.

130

In December 2014, the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines, Inc. (AACCUP) granted to CED the qualification for Level IV (Phase II) Status. As per CHED Memo Circular dated March 31, 2016, the College of Education was renewed as Center of Excellence in Teacher Education. Undoubtedly, the College of Education had metamorphosed. Success was continuously being passed from one generation to another. From being an agricultural institution, it turned out to be a well- known university around the globe. Likewise, from being a diminutive college, it turned to a leading foundation of teacher education. Prior to 1964, the College of Education has been managing the secondary education programs. The major program of the institution was the University Agricultural School with two

curricula; the Secondary Agricultural Curriculum for male students and the Secondary Agricultural Homemaking Curriculum for female students. Even so, this was abolished in 1974 for many graduates were not in the occupation they were trained for.

The predecessor of the University Laboratory High School is the Barrio Development School (BDS) aimed to develop students for establishment in farming. It is worthy to mention that the BDS is one of the twin extension programs of the university with the Social Laboratory (SL) as the other one which started in 1974. These projects later were merged into the Research and Development program in 1978. However, there was a clamor to change the curriculum of the BDS. The aspirations of parents and students were high. There were graduates who took and passed the College Entrance Examination. In 1979, the school offered General Secondary Curriculum. The Barrio Development School became the CLSU Outreach Schools

Three types of high schools were managed by the CLSU. The former University Agricultural School which was changed and replaced by the University Science High School (USHS) offers Science Curriculum, the Agricultural Science and Technology School (ASTS) offers Special Agricultural Curriculum and the three laboratory high schools (ULHS) in Porais, San Jose City; Palusapis in Science City of MuĂąoz, and Bibiclat in Aliaga which offer general secondary education curriculum .


(COS) to serve as conduits of CLSU to disseminate relevant information and technology. In 1984, the COS became the University Laboratory High Schools which served as venue for practice teaching of the College of Education students. In order to develop graduates imbued with entrepreneurial skills and at the same time enriched with science and technology, the General Science Technical and Vocational Curriculum administered by Agricultural Science and Technology School (ASTS) was established in 1996. This combined science, technical and vocational courses.

"Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it,� said Dwight D. Eisenhower. Leadership is veraciously on the mark, particularly in the context of an educational setting. As educators, we work diligently to engage and motivate students so they can learn, read, think critically, create, collaborate, and ultimately become life-long learners and leaders.

To create a transformative environment within an educational setting, we must have effective leaders. Through the years, the CLSU- College of Education had charted its path toward reaching the zenith of excellence. A golden dream turned into reality was made possible through the pillars who left good trails.

This is no easy feat even for an already established administrator. One is forever bound to becontinuously and deliberately seeking to create environment and culture that would promote learning and growth for students and teachers alike.

Indeed, they proved what Lance Secretan (1998) once said, “Leadership is not so much about technique and methods, as it is about opening the heart. Leadership is about inspiration— of oneself and of others. Great leadership is about human experiences, not processes. Leadership is not a formula or a program, it is a human activity that comes from the heart and considers the hearts of others. It is an attitude, not a routine.”
